Baby & Childrens' Knitwear & Crocheting

Run by sisters Fran and Pam who run Baby & Childrens' Knitwear.
 
Selling hand knitted and crocheted matinee jackets and cardigans for newborn to a 26 inch chest, in white, pink, blue, lemon and pale green.  They also provide matching bootees and white mittens for newborn babies.  Also available are jackets with hoods in sizes up to 26 inch chest which come in more varied colours.
 
Stock also includes crocheted shawls, cot/pram covers and a unique crocheted 'bowler hat' style of hat.
 
The sisters started their crafting  knitting items at St Mary's Church bazaar and from there it grew.  As the stock grew and the sisters looked further afield via craft fairs to sell their goods.
 
 
They get great enjoyment from seeing their stall visitors smile when they come up to see the items on display.  So many visitors have said how beautiful the goods are, which the sisters find greatly rewarding.
 
The group work by a rule of thumb that if an item isn't considered as perfect as they can make it, it doesn't go on the stall.  Equally, if they wouldn't buy it themselves, they wouldn't put it up for sale.
 
Selling their wares at Stamford Handmade craft events, and occasionally at independently run fairs within a 15 mile radius of Peterborough, the ladies really do keep it local.
 
Knowing that our items are often bought as gifts which the purchser hopes will give pleasure to the recipient makes us strive to keep standards high, whilst giving us pleasure in return.
 
They can be contacted via the Stamford Handmade website, where enquiries about commissions or our next events will gladly be taken.
